Second Complaint to Electoral Commission for Huhne

The Sunlight Centre has put in the following formal complaint to the Electoral Commission regarding Chris Huhne’s expenses. This comes on the back of the two LibDem councillors who blew the whistle on the murky affairs.

The Sunlight Centre for Open Politics has been looking into Huhne’s election returns for nearly a year. There are missing invoices, national irregularities, undeclared website costs and staffing holes.

Having been stonewalled on various occasions, Guido thinks they might be onto something with this one…

          While they’re at it, could they also investigate how the huhne managed to own 7 houses on a journalist’s wages…

            For god’s sake, I thought the penny had dropped. The Electoral Commission will find nothing wrong with Chris Huhne’s expenses just as they found nothing wrong with mine – Boaz.
            With regards to Chris’s 7 houses he came by them the same way as I came by my Spanish Villa. Us LibDems are all in it together and we realise the importance of a presence at a local level, particularly in planning. Do you know I am Head of Planning for Portsmouth City Council as well as being an MP. Jahbulon.

      The economy failed to show significant growth over the past two quarters as household spending in the UK worsened.
      Gross domestic product grew by 0.5 per cent in the first quarter of 2011, according to the Office for National Statistics.
      However growth in the first quarter simply cancelled out a 0.5 per cent decline in GDP in the final quarter of 2010, which was disrupted by heavy snowfall.

      The figures revealed that household spending declined by 0.6 per cent, its biggest drop since the second quarter of 2009 after consumers were squeezed by the failure of wages to keep pace with inflation.
      The sluggish pace of growth will prompt fresh criticism that the Government’s austerity measures were damaging the economic recovery.

      Business investment also declined 7.1 per cent quarter-on-quarter – its biggest fall for two years.

          The public sector finance figures for April – the first month of the new fiscal year – are disappointing. In fact public sector net borrowing (excluding financial interventions) came in at £10bn, against £6.5bn expected, and is the highest borrowing figure for an April on record – last year’s deficit was reduced by the one-off bank payroll tax that raised £3.5bn.

        What Anonymous forgot to mention for soem reason;

        The Office for National Statistics (ONS) reported the public sector net borrowing measure had a surplus of £3.735bn, higher than expected and the largest surplus since July 2008.

        However, a deficit of £1.266bn was recorded in January last year.

        Total public borrowing for the year to date now stands at £113bn, £14.1bn lower than at the same point last year.

        January’s surplus is expected to help the government meet its target for borrowing for the financial year to March 2011 of £148.5bn.

        To help cut the deficit the government is cutting public spending and raising some taxes, including last month’s rise in the VAT rate from 17.5% to 20%.

        The plan has the approval of the US Treasury Secretary, Timothy Geithner, who told the BBC in an interview that he was “very impressed” with the plan to reduce the budget deficit.

    If I may be so bold, I’d like to paste a comment I made from the previous topic onto this one (as this new topic appeared about 1 minute after I posted my comment on the old one, so my old one will probably be missed by most people)….

    I’m not sure if anyone’s spotted/mentioned this before, but I think the labour party and the BBC staff are rating people’s comments on the BBC blogs (perfectly decent comments start off with a high rating from real people, then after a few hours, those comments get reversed, and that logic is totally inconsistent with what you’d expect, ie you’d expect a highly-rated comment to stay near the top, you wouldn’t expect the overall user-audience’s taste to suddenly change direction).

    So, do your duty, and go through all the anti-labour/anti-bbc comments and up-rate them, and down-rate all the pro-bbc/pro-labour comments here:

The BBC were just blatently taking things out of context for pro-labour reasons and basically lying to the viewers/listeners about what was said” comments, and those comments all had very high ratings.
      Now all those comments are having their ratings lowered and it’s going the opposite way.

She might have got away with it entirely, had some alert blogger not spotted it. He instantly detected the coded message that Emily Thornberry was sending to all her right-on, bien-pensant, Labour-luvvie friends in Islington, or wherever else it is that they follow her on Twitter.”
